I manage apartments and have a resident in his 80 s who has lived at our community for over 22 years. He lives on the third floor and insist / that each night around the same time he hears thumping from 11 pm to 5 am. and in addition if he stands up through out the day in his apt he feels vibrations. He has accused his neighbors of doing things each night at the hours mentioned and that its not in his head. I ve been over there to listen when he hears the noise as well as other staff members and neighbors and we hear nothing. He is convinced someone is lying and doing something nightly in their apt. Its so frustrating . We have been working with over seven months and we can t get him to believe it could be medical.
I am a 59 yo female who has always had suicidal thoughts... starting in early childhood due to a few nasty traumas. It stopped in my 30 s. Now however, I have been going through a very rough 10 years. Lots of stress. No trauma but just stresses of daily survival. Job loss, poverty, and loneliness are a big part of it. The new symptom du jour is the sudden onset of violent images of myself being attacked by myself. Like cutting my own throat, smashing my head into a brick wall, and lots of stabbing images. I know my attacker in these flash images is me. Why am I seeing these things? Grief seems to be a trigger. It really increased after my little dog (my only love source) died last year. Self hatred is a real theme here. But it all seems very unconscious. Deeply buried. At least of course, until now. I have no desire to do myself an injury. I just want these images to stop. Any suggestions? BTW, I have no health ins. and can barely afford to feed myself. I would be grateful for any input. Thank you, Kathleen
